Morning Glories, part 3

Here are the explanations of the upper part of the design.

I added the following 2 colors, DMC 3078 and 225 to the palette proposed in the introductory post. The stitches used are the long and short stitch with 1 thread and the stem stitch with 2 threads.

I remind you that to get a nice result, it is necessary to surround each piece of the design with a split backstitch 1 thread.

Stems and leaves

The stems are all embroidered with stem stitch 2 threads by mixing all the green colors.

Begin by applying the color 500 at the bottom of the leaf.

 .

Do the same in the upper part of the leaf with the color 368.

 .

Finish filling the bottom of the leaf with the color 501.

 .

In the same way, finish the filling of the upper part with the color 320.

 .

Embroider the 2 backsides of the leaf with satin stitch 1 thread and colors 368 and 369.

 .

Flower

lower part

As usual, I started by embroidering a split backstitch 1 thread all around the whole pattern.

Note that I made a small change to the horizontal petal lapel, finding it too thin on the right side.

I then placed the various veins with the color 797.

 .

Then fill the upper part (in the shade as under the lapel) with the color 3838 intercalated between the veins.

 .

Continue with color 3840.

 .

Then with the white B5200.

 .

Finish with color 3078.

I added a few stitches with the color 160 on the right side of the pattern to give an impression of shade. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture but you will see it in the following photos.

Flower

upper part

 

Start by putting the first touches of light with the 3840 color.

 .

Add the color 3839.

 .

Then fill the rest of the Corolla with the color 3838 leaving an empty part at the bottom.

 .

Fill the remaining part with the color 797 by adding a few stitches in the top of the petals to give more life to the flower.

 .

Embroider the backside of the petal with satin stitch and the color 3840 respecting the direction of the stitches.
